Where did you find this awesome cover?! lel

Call me a nerd, but I like the 'Information Society Live: It is Useless to Resist Us' cover and their 'Synthesizer' cover.

Great albums. Thanks
Since I really only own Tom Petty and David Bowie records and they aren't very flashy, I'm going to go with my favorite record that would come into the used bookstore from time to time. :D

Love it.

Seriously...... I fell off my chair! We may have to start voting.

This is just amazing... I think this needs some spoofing.
onrust (author)  jessyratfink1 year ago
Dang....There are almost 30,000 results for this song on youtube! I didn't mean to clown on this.......... but I do keep looking at the hair like a bad car accident
Hahaha, clown away. I especially like how two of them look dead on like teenage boys in drag. :D
onrust (author)  jessyratfink1 year ago
CONGRATULATIONS! This cover comes up as #4 on a Google image search for "funny album covers all times" :)
Hmmm all three could pass for boys in drag LOL
My own picture..

which is very perfect on cover photo.

Um, vanity is a sin.....lol
I don't think "she" is saying that is a picture of her. At least, the profile says she's a she :-)
onrust (author)  Goodhart1 year ago
I was just clowning around....but is this an album....or a teen throb CD cover????
onrust (author)  onrust1 year ago
Of course it make no difference, I was just curious.
Well of course, I could be mistaken with the SHE designation too, since the Avatar is a stock photo of Evan Rachel Wood
Well, first the words on the shirt are "mirror image" so the picture IS being taken from a mirror; secondly a Google image search got me nothing on the picture as either an album cover or anywhere else on the web.
Goodhart1 year ago
Hmmm, not sure about this one either, especially since I am NOT a big Brittany Spears fan.....but here is a link to the cover.....
onrust (author)  Goodhart1 year ago
screw the link. thats awesome!

onrust (author)  monsterlego1 year ago
It's all about record sales.
First up is Frank Zappa's Overnight Sensation. (References to every song on the album - note the slime oozing out of the TV set)

After that, anything by Roger Dean in the Yes era. He has a couple books, I have two of them.
onrust (author)  AnubisAndIsis1 year ago
Joe's garage is simply bad ass and I have seen the "Album Cover Album". Great stuff and thanks

I still like the old ELP album covers:

Track 3 up there. Still..... you turn me on. MAN, is that a killer song!
Goodhart onrust2 years ago
Yes, one of Lake's love songs from the Brain Salad Surgery album:

Although I do like their adaptations of some classical works:  "Toccata",  "Fanfare for the Common Man" (used at the Olympics one year), 

I did like their Works and Tarkus albums also  (Pictures at an Exhibition, is one of my favorite pieces).

I always wanted to make a T-Shirt from Taj Mahal's "Mo' Roots" Album cover. Sort of reminds me of Santana's "Abraxas" album. Very 70's style.

onrust (author)  triumphman1 year ago
Good call! I never noticed the audience. So, its a reptile backstage & possibly peeping through the curtain? who is that iceng?
onrust (author)  iceng2 years ago
My dad had that Rust Never Sleeps. Every time I flipped through his albums I'd see that cover and wonder what that meant. Thanks for the post.
ilpug onrust2 years ago
Can't argue with Rust Never Sleeps. that is the coolest concert video... Freaking Jawas....
onrust (author) 1 year ago
I found these 2 on a google search. I guess they struck my fancy.

Maybe Carlos Santana's Abraxas, or Roxy Music's Country Life (any Roxy cover, actually)...

nsfw.

Let's throw in Zappa's Weasels Ripped my Flesh, too.
onrust (author)  gmoon1 year ago
Great picks man. This Roxi Music was one of my original pics but I only posted a link due to content......look what I found! lol

Thanks--that edited Roxy cover might pique some curiosity ;-).

I miss real album covers. Practically, culturally, spiritually. And I miss Frank, too. (raising it up, waxing it down).
onrust (author)  gmoon1 year ago
OMFG.....I just stole back an old cd player from my boy and if there wasn't a copy of Strictly Commercial in it and my rechargeable batteries. Im on a hot rats and willy the pimp kick as of late.

onrust (author)  Goodhart1 year ago
Yes, this was an instant classic! great pick
ok, without looking at the original, can you tell me what I "edited out" ? >:-D
onrust (author)  Goodhart1 year ago
I thought the kid had "junk" .....nice work
ah yep :-) I thought it best to remove....pretty good for a quick use of paint, eh? :-)
ilpug Goodhart1 year ago
Oh no, you neutered the Nirvana baby!

I saw an interview with the grown up kid, he said "It's weird that so many people have seen me naked, I feel like some kinda porn star or something."
onrust (author)  ilpug1 year ago
so he should have no problem being a porn star.....?
ilpug onrust1 year ago
Probably not. I don't think too many people would have a problem with that.
onrust (author)  ilpug1 year ago
no, people would "tune in" for "it"......get it.....lol
ilpug onrust1 year ago
Cringe

Yeah, they would.
